Aron Baynes, 31, C

2017-2018 statistics: 6.0 PPG, 5.3 RPG, 18.3 MPG

In just a matter of years, Aron Baynes went from being that guy that Blake Griffin dunked all over in the opening round of the 2015 Playoffs to being that beefy Aussie that started almost every game for the Boston Celtics this past season.

Baynes is good, but not in a sexy way. He’s more gritty than polished, more muscle than finesse. However, he’s been invaluable this year for a depleted Celtics team. Opponents were nearly seven points worse when he was on the court versus when he was off, and with his 6-10, 260 pound frame, Baynes will wear you down in the paint.

And while most of his shots come in the post, Baynes showed vastly improved range during the regular season, converting 74 of 163 midrange attempts.

He’ll rarely throw one up from three-point range, let alone convert from there. But he’s a reliable scorer that provides more offensive versatility than Jordan currently can, and that’s something the Clippers need.
